Success Stories

Nov 23, 2010


Do you remember 3½ years ago when you rescued me – I was all skin and bone – no fat, no muscle, hardly any hair and very smelly! I told you I needed a home with a great big soppy dog to look after tiny wee me. And when Roker, the golden retriever, arrived with his people, I knew that this was the family for me and jumped into the back of the car. They christened me Bertie.

I got lots of great food, lovely walks and am now the tough wee fellow in the picture. Unfortunately, Roker became ill a couple of years later and died, so I had full responsibility for looking after my people.

 After about a year, I was getting lonely. This time, I thought it would be good for them to have a girl dog and you found a collie cross for us. We called her Gowan and I helped my people to look after her. She now has a beautiful coat and runs very fast. She has become my very best friend (even better than Roker) and we play together – real doggy growling, biting, rolling games – but we never hurt each other. There are only two problems – one is that she tries to stop me chasing sticks and the other is that she now eats all her food and won’t let me have any!

Thank you from Gowan and me for finding us a lovely home with each other and our people – we love them too!

Love from Bertie
